8 points for a draw, 3 bowling points after putting Northants in and bowling them all out and that’s it!Only need a maximum of 10 points in the last game to secure promotion.

Middlesex are on 186 and could get a maximum of 24 points, which puts them on 210. Yorkshire are on 201, but if we lose then even with maximum bonus points we would only get to 209. So if Yorkshire lose and Middlesex win, it comes down to those first 110 overs of the four first innings.

Over the season Yorkshire have so far managed 9 more batting points and 6 more bowling points, which suggests we probably will pick up enough bonus points compared to Middlesex anyway, but you never know if we are in a losing game and they are in a winning one.

if Middx only get say 2 batting points (300) that takes them to max 207, which means that us getting 7 bonus points ( say 400 in 110 overs and bowling Nton out) would see us home regardless of result. Alternativly drawing regardless of bonus points would then see us home

Not done yet. A lot could depend on the weather and also how Middlesex do against already promoted Sussex. If Yorkshire lose to Northants, could get nervy!

What would Sussex rather do next season - long expensive trip to Yorkshire or cosy few days at Middlesex

Doh, you’ve just jinxed it now, just looked at the BBC weather forecast for Leeds tail end of next week and it is ️Last games start next Thursday.

Yorkshire virtually have to have a flood at Headingly not to secure 2nd position.

More likely to be a draw and bowling points if there is a lot of rain, so that will mean promotion.

If I am correct If we finish on the same points Middlesex would go above us, due them having one more win.I think that’s correct Motown since the most points for a game is 24.
